Financial Assistance and Scholarships

Villanova University

Villanova is committed to providing financial assistance to students on the basis of the family's ability to contribute, as the holistic admission process for domestic students is need-blind. Through grants, loans and student employment opportunities provided through federal, state and University resources, the University seeks to make a Villanova education affordable. Villanova's financial assistance budget—including the Villanova Grant Program—has grown steadily over the last five years.

The Office of Financial Assistance provides complete information about financial aid at Villanova, including important deadlines and how to apply, as well as current year costs.

If Villanova offers what you are looking for in a college or university, complete an application for admission and financial assistance, and make your college choice based on the financial assistance that you receive.

A limited number of merit-based scholarships are available, including the Presidential Scholarship, for students who have demonstrated academic achievement and active participation in their school and the broader civic community.

Helpful Tip

You may complete the financial assistance application as early as October 1 of your senior year. Do not wait until you have heard your admission decision to apply for financial assistance!
